4.0 out of 5 stars No Mess & Ultra Quick, 14 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Kitchen Microwave Oven 4Eggs Heart-shaped Poacher Cooker Steamer evaporating (Kitchen & Home)
I love poached eggs.
On the other hand, I don't love the hassle of producing them, the time it takes up, the residue it leaves in the pan & the mess it creates.
This microwave poacher really is an absolute doddle to use & removes all of the above bother... It's probably quite a bit more economical too.
You just grease each mould with a bit of margarine, chuck in the eggs, poke the yolks with a pointy knife & zap for 90 seconds on medium power.
There is a fair amount of "popping" (to be expected) from the microwave, but I find that this diminishes when you get the cooking power just right, as it does take a few attempts to get perfect results that suit you (by slight adjustment of the cooking time and/or power as required)... Note that one egg will need cooking slightly differently to four (for example) via judicious reduction of time or power.
Once you do get it right, you get eggs suited perfectly to your taste every time.
The only reason it loses a star is that the cooking methodology does not create exactly the same egg-white texture as poaching in a pan with water... Instead you end up with the slightly harder texture that you also get with hard boiled eggs (you really do & it is noticable). I guess this will be down to dehyration not prevented by actually cooking in water.
I still love this device & wish I had found it sooner... They've been out for years, but I always seem the last to catch on...
